Astrology: Venus Square Neptune July 27 2020: Illusory Desires

  After some fits and starts since the publication of my second book, The Complete Guide to Astrology, I FINALLY feel like writing again! Incidentally, I have a give away running on my Cosmic Owl Astrology Facebook page for a signed. copy of my book (USA only) or 5 runner up prizes of an Audible copy. Head on over there to enter after you read this :). I will be drawing the winners on the Full Moon on August 3rd. I can’t keep up writing daily energy posts any more because of time so I am going to experiment to find my new stride. Writing is like a muscle, the more you write, the more you write so please bear with me. Today I am going to write about the third exact square of Venus in Gemini to Neptune in Pisces at the 20˚ mark. This third and final square exacts on July 27th and the first two squares were on May 3rd (both planets direct) and May 20th (Venus Rx). On this third exact square, Neptune is Rx. Venus in Gemini is all about our relationships to community and each other. It’s a fun and sociable placement but Mercurial in nature due to Gemini being ruled by Mercury. This period of Venus in Gemini has Venus retrograding from May 13th to June 25th for the first time in eight years and has meant that we’ve been reflecting on our values in relationship to each other and community. Neptune rules Pisces and is all about illusion, faith, trust, surrender and brings confusion and disorientation. We’ve been through a VERY confusing...
Astrology of Asteroid Juno: Carrying  the World.

Astrology of Asteroid Juno: Carrying the World.

  Juno occupies a powerful place in the Cosmos right now. Looking at the chart on the left (and ignoring the fast moving Moon for now) she is on her own on the Western Hemisphere (the right side is the Western Hemisphere in the astrology chart) of the chart, with all other planets and asteroids in the Eastern Hemisphere and the Lunar Nodes, currently at 2˚ Capricorn/Cancer forming the line between them all. This makes a bucket pattern in terms of Astrological configurations with Juno as the handle of the bucket. It’s a pattern I know well as my Gemini Moon is at the handle of a bucket in my own chart. Let’s take a look at the Juno myth before discussing what this means astrologically. Juno was one of the oldest Roman deities, the three original Gods, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. She is associated with Hera in the Greek myths but belief in Juno pre-existed Hera and they are not the same. Juno had various names, Juno Regina (Queen), Juno Sospita (protector of confinement, childbirth), Juno Lucina (Light), Juno Moneta (Moon). She was said to be both the wife and sister of Jupiter, King of the Gods, and mother of Mars, whose father was not Jupiter but rather a flower — though many stories now say Jupiter. How interesting that the symbol for Juno looks like a flower. Juno is the protector of and the women her power has been long sidelined and underestimated as have all female deities during the Age of Pisces which roughly relates to the Age of Christianity. As we leave that Astrological Age and move...
Unprecedented Astrological Shift

Unprecedented Astrological Shift

And Why This Astrologer is Not Afraid   Well here we are. The moment Astrologers have been watching for years and years.  There’s lots of trepidation and fear around these next few days, and the aftermath, as Saturn and Pluto meet in Capricorn right after a lunar Eclipse on the Cancer/Capricorn nodes with the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Ceres also in Capricorn.  I’ve done so much talking about it on video that I am almost sick of it and ready for it to be ‘over’. But it won’t be ‘over’ as the cycles starting now and over the next few months are going to hurtle us into the Age of Aquarius and the change will come so fast I am not sure we’ll know what has hit us. What is ‘over’ is old cycles and new ones are beginning. Saturn and Pluto last met in 1518 CE as the Protestant reformation happened. They last met in Capricorn with Jupiter there in 1284 CE when Jews were being targeted in Europe and the Pied Piper of Hamelin originated. Before that the three met in 1894 BCE when the City of Babylon was created. The last time in any sign was in 1982 in Libra. This is not commonplace.  But we didn’t know of the existence of Pluto back then since the excavator with a heart (an actual heart) wasn’t discovered until 1930 when we as a culture (Western culture) began a deep dive into the soul and psyche and the revealing of the nastiness of patriarchal culture (culture - not men) began to be inexorably revealed.  Now we reach the...
